Totem and Taboo - Freud
My compliments to Mary Schneider's reading of this work. It's difficult to intonate technical verbiage in a fashion so as to clearly delineate its order. Ms. Schneider has done this excellently, as taxing an undertaking as it must have been. I am grateful to her for her efforts, and I highly recommend this recording.

Totem of Review - read by Mary Schneider
God Bless You, Mary Schneider ! I don't know if you were paid for reading this book, but you should have been ! Really, I'm a big fan of Carl Jung who wants to start with Freud also. (After all, Freud was there first, wasn't he?) This reading of Totem and Taboo has got me started. Many thanks !
